Easy Christmas Bark
One of my favorite ways to celebrate the Christmas season is by making homemade treats for those that I love. I would much rather bake up a basket full of goodies to give than purchase a store-bought gift. I put a lot of love into my food and that’s why I especially enjoy coming up with new recipes to share with you here.
I’ve tried candy making in the past and have failed many times over (i.e burned my finger making microwave peanut brittle and burned my mom’s stove top making homemade taffy), but this has to be the EASIEST candy recipe you will ever make. And isn’t it so pretty??? Everyone will think that you spent a lot of time on this Easy Christmas Bark, when it reality it only takes a few minutes to put together.
Feel free to change up the toppings to better fit your tastes. You could swap the peanuts for pecans and the chocolate candies for peanut butter chips. The possibilities are endless. I hope you enjoy making this Easy Christmas Bark to eat or to give to family and friends. Merry Christmas and enjoy!
